Epworth House: growing in Christ together
Epworth House, a Christian student residence in Sydney, is open for applications. ASC Member Raul Sugunananthan and some past residents tell us what it's like to live together in a community with the love and grace of Jesus at its heart.

Epworth House is a Christian student residence closely connected to Leichhardt Uniting Church.
It began as an intentional community in 2011 when Leichhardt Uniting saw a need for affordable student housing in inner Sydney and took the opportunity to create a space that nurtures and enables young adults to grow in Christ together.
As primarily a household of believers, it requires of its members real participation in the worship and missional life of the congregation, together with a commitment to share in the welfare and lives of all other residents.
It provides a life-giving opportunity to practice Jesus' teachings of love and grace with people from all different backgrounds, and many of those who have lived at Epworth can attest that in many ways, this is the future of the Church.
Like Leichhardt Uniting, Epworth House is a safe and affirming place for all community members.
